The internal DHCP client of NetworkManager doesn't work on IPoIB interfaces
Last modified: 2017-10-27 08:11:05 EDT
Description of problem:
When changing the DHCP client from the default (dhclient) to the internal one, NetworkManager fails to obtain an address through DHCP on IPoIB interfaces.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set "dhcp=internal" in the [main] section of /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
2. restart NetworkManager
3. try to activate a DHCP connection on IPoIB
The same bug is present in RHEL 7.3.
The default DHCP client (dhclient) is not affected.
Fixed by systemd commit:
Pushed a new bg/systemd branch that imports systemd code, please review.
